Doctor’s Best High Absorption CoQ10 Review
This is a review of the dietary supplement High Absorption CoQ10 with BioPerine 100 mg. This CoQ10 dietary supplement is claimed by the manufacturer to assist with the promotion of heart vitality, cellular energy, and cardiovascular health. In addition, it is claimed that this product can refuel CoQ10 levels, especially for people over the age of 40 years of age, and for those on statin drugs for high cholesterol.
- Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone) – 100 mg
- Black pepper extract (piper nigrum fruit) – 5 mg
Other ingredients: Depending on the type of capsule (soft gel or veggie capsule) the extra ingredients differ. For the soft gel capsule the extra ingredients are extra virgin oil, soft gel capsule (gelatin, glycerin, purified water, beeswax, soy lecithin, rosemary extract). For the veggie capsules, the extra ingredients include rice powder, modified cellulose (vegetarian capsule), magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silicon dioxide. The latter capsules are suitable for vegans and vegetarians, whereas the former are not. Coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient that is key to energy production at the cellular level − it is vital for generating metabolic energy. Furthermore, this antioxidant vitamin-like nutrient helps to protect cells from damage. As people age, the level of this nutrient declines, therefore supplementing it becomes useful. However, this substance is not easily absorbed by the body. Adding black pepper helps to overcome this problem. It should be mentioned that 100 mg of CoQ10 is rather low, research studies having concluded that 250 mg is highest dosage available, and more helpful
The manufacturer of this dietary supplement recommends that adults take one (1) capsule daily with a meal. Alternatively, the instructions should be approved by your doctor.

Doctor’s Best High Absorption CoQ10 Review – The Bottom Line
Research studies have shown the benefit of supplementing the diet with CoQ10, not only for heart health, but also for cell renewal. This dietary supplement contains black pepper extract which aids effective absorption of this substance. Also, a vegan-friendly capsule is available. However, the lack of a guarantee raises concerns. Our research also found that, of the 2581 reviews on Amazon, only 64% are reliable. However, in general, the reviews are of low quality or unreliable, with most offering suspiciously positive content. Our research also uncovered that 36% of reviews were of low quality, and 15 reviews had been deleted. No discounts or package deals are offered. Lastly, the strength of the product is inferior to other products, having only 100 mg of CoQ10: the best standard is 250 mg.
